and locally will take a look at the weather is not nearly as exciting around here. a little bit of morning fog that are not a lot of fog. look at this live picture of the golden gate bridge. this lovely out there. will be in the '70s and '80s later on today. and farther inland you can see in the '50s all-around a bay area little bit cooler. it's 46 degrees. here's our pinpoint forecast good morning everyone. we begin with a delay of the u.s. open at this is about a day old and to see the line of showers and thundershowers develop over new england and treated some nasty weather out there with tourism and storms this moved offshore and with the potential for a showers we hope to get done today. and as we head out the door the spots on the shore line and the clout to move back in a around the bay we have some
sunshine into some clouds temperatures are mostly in the fifties to low 60s. low pressure is in command of the pacific and as result the numbers have been unusually cool. about 10 degrees cooler and average for this time of year in san francisco yesterday a record high was 101 degrees. the setback in 19 04. things are have the conditions that warm weather. we continue this mostly mild on the bay area today carried begin at last night with a cloud of back in on the shore line and a little bit. but the san skies and more low clouds come back and listen night and now keep things mild middle of a drizzle along the shore line as well. we look one in central valley. we have 87 in sacramento. after going all the way to lake tahoe it'll be 79 degrees. is not that. a typical
summer day of peace for the valley. and you head of the bay area bid time you have some low clouds and a high of 69. we have lots of sunshine out there. the temperatures committees the southland in los angeles. the bay area will be unusually cool for this time of year. is not happen today. but ec eminent will slowly began to increase in numbers and he 21. we go up no. 8 with 76 in santa rosa and 57 and the debate. the 68 for oakland as we look ahead and friday for cast members began to come out and by next thursday and friday will be in the '90s and around the bay the numbers will be in the mid-70s and along the coast pretty much the mid-
60s. that is not bad. have a great some day everyone. the big question now is how the u.s. since stepped up against a car parts in india and china. the found alarming results to the director of children and families program the center of the next generation she also offered the new report. and what were the findings the findings of china and india are ramping up compared team as it treats our turn for example house about 20 or 30 or 2 million college graduates to announce more than the entire united states work force. in india as well will be four times as many high-school graduates as we do in nine states. part of this is to have larger populations the media. but i think one of things we recognize this just as they are ramping up we're stagnating or education. thus, pulse we have your this the big point on the
campaign trail on both parties. these different plans you're seeing in propose the dividend in this deficiency? there's a problem at the federal level upon the state level and sourcing both cuts that the federal level announced cuts of the state level. when things recommending in this report is that we have to come together in a way the first president bush brought together a national education some and bring all the governors together with the president and figure out how to make this come together in a bipartisan way. we've not seen that a long time. what about the philosophical differences between america's education and china's in india's and for example the testing in china and india you pass a test you go on in school. he did not pass a test you did not go on. we would not increase that to rid our be advocating that as well? we're not advocating at work or can't the chinese system. within their
things to concern the chinese system in china lines of that from our system as well. look what happened from within the last international assessment or so how children are doing in shanghai compared the nine states. but we did find was that in reading and math the students in shanghai or first. we're 14 in reading and 25th and math detested in shanghai which is the most advanced area of in china. so there are millions of children out there who are not being counted but also they have rigid and teach the test. and not into the hall was the idea of education which america embraces. is much the same. my question is the funding needed for any competitive i think we have a plan and both are important. we need more funding and lead keeping up as well. we also need to be looking at what works such a look at reading for example we just
tested since the wealthiest schools with person reading. a math were middle of the ground. so when the things we have to do better job is figuring out how to teach math and this country better. are we making sure that we have in our classroom able to teach math. thus when the deficits we have here. is not a full answer but the answer has to be some kind of nation to know how our students are doing in that we have the inputs and the good teachers starting off early and all the things that we know that work. we're not doing enough we have some and numbers and some hard numbers of the comparison and had their extreme. one of things as interesting that is america have the next generation to complete globally and rethink the next bill gates is to come from? most people thought would be not
coming from united states. of the people said that in china or india to what they see that the education that they're getting in china and india is to create the next bill gates. and in addition to look at the issue of where the thing the next sentence that will cure cancer. no one is beginning estates for these and were you calling on this? with the this with bob part of her and some posters in washington d.c. and uphold american voters and i think the ec hear some american voters are savvy and mature hearing is that we have no that is we are not dear education system is not expected to be. they worry about it. the worry that the next bill gates is not coming from nine states. and some of great things about the nine states are our education system thus promote creativity and see can see that innovators meat company nine states but what i think is
use a 23 year-old veteran working in the u.s. open this weekend as a ball boy carried in los lower portion of its lead in afghanistan after stepping on a land mine in 2010. the addition for to be a ball chaser this past may. he thought to be inspiring. and warner lost a leg doesn't mean it changes william. and do some difficult and at the look in the eyes keystone army and helps disabled veterans. he plans to complete in the 2016 para olympics in brazil. and the giants said the division lead trimmed as they face the dodgers. the athletics had a victory in seattle. in college football has scored wins for both cal and stanford. and toast the rest.

sunday with temperatures up into the '70s and '80s later today inland and '60s around the coast. here's the rest of the forecast. were going to begin with what the delay of the u.s. open at yesterday's the line of showers and thunderstorms as developed in new england and greeted nasty weather up there with two innocent thunderstorms and heavy rain that's moved offshore and the potential for lingering showers will hope that they get that done today. local cover will move back and run the bay area strain out with some sunshine and the cloud cover and the temperatures begin today mostly in the mid fifties to low 60s. the pressure in command in the
pacific and as a result and numbers of an unusually cool 10 degrees cooler than average for this time of year in san francisco yesterday's record high was 101 degrees set back in 1904 way off of that mark now because we just don't have the offshore conditions that would lead to many warm weather and will continue most the mother around the bay area today. they last initially the cloud cover packing and along the shoreline a little bit that the in sunshine for today a look cloud cover coming in later tonight keeping things mild and a little drizzle on the shoreline as well. it looks warm the central valley with 87 degrees in sacramento and 98 in fresno. it's not that a typical summer day for the great valley but if you're heading out of the bay area tomorrow expect local cover

we talked to the assemblyman at pg&e with a long way to go. the one conclusion of come to is that it is just a matter of time if it didn't happen in san bruno would happen someplace else and now could still happen with 500 spots to run the system that could cause and have the same circumstances that existed in san bruno that could develop into a problem. it is a challenge to the main difficulty is the consumer protection safe give it division came up with the report and the file list to determine that piccinni culture has still not changed their still incentivizing profits over safety and still not doing the work that's necessary to change their culture from one of profits to safety and that's the real major problem from the report that they came up with. and they're in charge of
regulating they're saying that slogans and genocide nothing has changed from that standpoint and that's the real problem. until the change the culture and the legislation they fought hard to kill of the safety provisions. not to let them off the hook but prior to san bruno the california public utilities commission and even some consumer watchdog groups are not paying attention to safety was all about rates and money. go to this means and it was always about rates and money and not about safety. so what are they doing to ensure 500 different spots they're working and trying to fix them had degree the moon out there fixing them they're working hard to solve the problems the to slow process. what took minutes to destroy it will take years to rebuild in san bruno but the infrastructure was so neglected for so many years and it's going to take years and probably decades
before it could be resolved to a point where we feel safe and there's a comfort level and that's the troubling part because they diverted funds and the millions of dollars of the many years diverting $56,000,000.30 years from safety of operation and maintenance to profits and bonuses and that hasn't changed. the incentive to still the driving force for much of the bonus program for executives. you have several those in the works 1 addresses that issue to try to disincentive as profits the only way utility can increase their profit is to cut expenses. how did this incentivize the profit and change the culture a bill i did that but the struck out three but to fight hard enough to take out of that though the part that would change from focusing on profits to focusing on safety critics isn't that the rule of the public utilities commission that tour we have these people
appointed and financing the operation to keep utilities and mines and what's going on and the bill that i had was designed to take them out of the hands a little bit in force them into that. the puc wants it but with the bill did out of the net authority but the capitol lawn initiative exercise that authority. we have three new members as we talked about before and i think were doing a marvelous job of trying to bring them in line and do the right thing. the report recently outlining the changes that the first time i've seen them so critical of the utility. i see in the future and much persistent liquidity to long time and vigilance on all of our parts. with that bills and personnel changes but in the meantime a lot of neighborhood to sit in that spending on ticking time bombs sweaty city the people concerned it's possible it certainly
is we are hoping that doesn't happen and pg&e has reduced the pressure of the lines so it doesn't have the stress level and that should cause the problem in san bruno. we're looking forward to that area as it goes forward but thousands of miles of pipe that needs to be expected and this is just the steel transmission lines a plastic pipe out there because the explosion in cupertino and roseville last year that pipe needs to be inspected and replaced its going to be interesting and i said how they're going to proceed from now on piccinni just wasn't the one at fault everybody misstep when it came to safety greta and nobody was regulating them as they were supposed to be so there are major changes coming to them because of this. these changes are also and coming in neighborhoods are in danger as we speak. critic at about that is in
pakistan both because if we take our eyes off of it it will go back. a big hit to the dnc this week was not the governing president of a former president bill clinton and the took center stage some people say he stole the show so what is he going to do for president obama next with the political insider coming up.
one of the memorable zingers by former president look into the democratic national convention this week with the these 25 million people turning into what to rally the party faithful. more than the nfl kickoff came. clinton said decamping for president obama in miami now this tuesday. return to our political insider the farmers said that his commander in the first question is the appearance and truckers signal the return of the clinton hadn't seen a while and that 40 years ago said his time and passed to the question is what brought him back. need absolute need. he was obviously the right guy at the right time for a party if and finnish ship you had been listening. he carries with him sorta the energy and the spark of the democratic party still.
the democratic base like the kennedys can motivate latinos in the country it's too bad kennedy was in around because you would of had the complete package he was the symbol for all the things with cesar chavez and bobby kennedy bill clinton is that every other aspect of the democratic party. what to the to the more what he believed to do the next couple of months? obama cannot win this election alone and not think joe biden could give him a lot of extra votes. bill clinton will be the chosen server get for every one of the hard-pressed democratic base in colorado and nevada and ohio and pennsylvania it will be bill clinton. we're looking at the clinton the look of obama and mitt romney is not much difference in in the script but
what is it about the clinton delivery that makes him the oldest of the political world. clinton has a natural gift communicating. he talked about difference in words there is a difference in words. clinton's words from all two syllables is understandable by the homeless guy as a matter of fact clinton appears to be speaking only to the homeless guy or only to the cab driver he appears to be talking only to one person. every person and the room believes the clinton is talking directly to now why don't more politicians understand that? what happens when you get on the stage? its the gaff i learned early on i have no idea rick came from, but i knew that i had to pick people up in the audience to whom i was speaking.
